The club has Social club runs every 2nd Sunday of each month, and every Monday evening.
MONDAY CLUB RUNS
Meet at Nether Row, Near Caldbeck at 6 pm (what ever the weather) including bank holidays. A circuit of High Pike each time with some variations on route choice.
The parking area is Grid ref: 324 378
Meet at the car park below the track to Bowscale Tarn. 7pm Tuesday evenings. If the weather is really awful or roads icey or too snowy etc then usually cancelled. Up hill interval training, approx 40 min workout. Work as hard or as not as you want! If no one turns up then do them on your own. Parking Grid Ref. NY358316
SUNDAY SOCIAL CLUB RUN
The next Sunday club run is Sunday 25th February.
For a change I thought we could meet at the footbridge over the River Derwent grid reference 253238. Meet 9 am. There is usually plenty of parking on the cul-de-sac road leading to the bridge, i.e. First right turn off the B5289 when entering Keswick from the West off the A66. If the weather is good the run will be over the bridge, through Portinscale and Fawe Park to Hawes End. Up over Catbells and down to the road at Manesty. The run back will follow the lakeside path back to Hawes End and Portinscale. If the weather is bad the run out will follow the Allerdale Ramble path from Hawes End along the side of Catbells and again return along the Lakeside path. I estimate the distance will be 8 to 9 miles for either route with about 1500 feet of climb for the route over Catbells.It is the day after the High Cup Nick race so the pace will be nice and leisurely and there is the option of stopping for a coffee at either Lingholm or Portinscale on the way back.
